GOPI 2018

I entered the Guardians of Pauatahanui Inlet photo competition again this year and managed to get my best result so far with winning photos in the Recreation and Artistic categories along with three highly commended photos in the Recreation, Artistic and Scenic categories (I’d previously won the Wildlife category back in 2013). Alayna and I […]

The Strait Feronia

Recently the Wellington ferry company Bluebridge announced that they had purchased a new ferry and it was sailing its way from Sweden to arrive on the 1st June. There was an associated photo competition to capture the best photo of the Strait Feronia’s Wellington arrival so I figured we’d get out and see if we […]

A summer holiday – Hamilton

We had a couple of nights in Hamilton and we spent our free day wandering in the city and later on going for a walk to visit Adam’s school. I had told Bridget about a photo competition I am looking at entering which has a theme around tea in an urban setting. Bridget though the […]

GOPI 2013

Keryn and I attended the prizegiving for the Guardians of Pauatahanui Inlet (GOPI) 2013 photography competition. I was lucky enough to be chosen as the winner in the nature category and had 3 photos highly commended across a few categories as well. The photos entered improve every year and I think I’ve been learning from […]

Competition results, a book and a calendar

I’ve been slowly thinking through what I might enter for two of the bigger NZ based competitions coming up, the DPhoto Amateur Photographer of the Year and NZ Geographic Photographer of the Year. For the NZ Geographic competition I can take some encouragement from the Flickr group they promote. The editor and photo editor are […]

The category asks for creative close-up photos of foam and these are a few of my attempts, with my entry the last. Photo by Brendon & Keryn Multiple colours.

The Great Weta Race pt. 3

There were a number of different groups who went out during the day on the Great Weta Race and as they all came back to the Weta Cave their photos were put on display so everyone could see the fantastic efforts of all concerned. Once the final group came back and the last photos had […]

DPhoto Amateur Photographer of the Year 2011

The 2011 DPhoto Amateur Photographer of the Year competition is running until April 26th but I figured I’d get my entries in now, you can see them below. There are six categories and I’ve entered a photo in each. This year they’ve done away with the silly voting system from last time around and now […]

An excuse for photos

There are a couple of photo competitions that I’ll be looking at entering over the next month or so. The DPhoto Amateur Photographer of the Year is back and this year sponsored by Nikon. They’ve done away with the silly voting scheme from last year as well which is good. I’ve also recently found out […]

Walking Locally

The opportunity finally presented itself (good weather, the tide was right, we were both available and willing) for a chance to walk the coastal path between Pukerua Bay and Plimmerton on the weekend just gone. We caught the train from Plimmerton to Pukerua Bay and then headed down to the Bay before following the coast […]

Entered, almost

I’ve pretty much run out of time to take more photos for the Photo5 competition so I’ve uploaded four of my five entries. You can see the entries by clicking on the Photo5 image below. The one photo I haven’t uploaded is for the Inspired by Sound category. I want to enter the following photo […]

Photo5 2010: Confetti in motion

A lovely morning with light wind had me out on the deck shooting another idea, this time for the Confetti in Motion category. It took a lot of tries to get decent confetti action, not so easy without an assistant to let the confetti fly, hold out my hand and fire the camera. In the […]
